Bill Flannigan from Risctec will be showing us the ins and outs of Oracle’s Exadata Database Machine:
“The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is the only database machine that provides extreme performance for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) applications, making it the ideal platform for consolidating onto grids or private clouds. It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, secure, and redundant. With Oracle Exadata Database Machine, customers can reduce IT costs through consolidation, manage more data on multiple compression tiers, improve performance of all applications, and make better business decisions in real time.”- http://www.oracle.com/us/products/database/exadata-database-machine/index.html
This is not a sales pitch! Bill has experience with Exadata and you’ll get the views of someone who’s had to implement this technology in the real world.
